Our vision is to be considered as the world’s leading youth tournament, attracting top-class youth teams from each continent to compete for the Mina Cup.
The UAE is a melting pot of nationalities that attracts the biggest names of professional sport to compete in major events & enjoy its world famous hospitality.
Building on personal experience of the great tournaments like the Milk Cup in Ireland, Gothia Cup in Sweden & other famous European youth competitions, the Mina Cup will blend Arabic heritage, superb accommodations & facilities with European experience to create a truly unforgettable experience for all players, coaches & families involved.

We are delighted to have Teddy Sheringham, one of the most decorated players of his generation, as the Mina Cup Ambassador.
Sheringham amassed over 750 appearances with clubs including Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur & West Ham United. He also represented England 51 times, scoring 11 goals in the process.
The Mina Cup provided our players, coaches and families with a fantastic experience to visit Dubai and play against top level teams from across the Globe.
Everything from the fields to the accommodation were of a high level and we look forward to competing at next years Mina Cup.
Paul Bright | AYSO United
The tournament itself was well organised & the opportunities to experience additional
activities within the City such as visiting the shopping mall, theme park etc was
extremely valuable for our players, who gained an insight into both societal & cultural
differences in Dubai in comparison to the UK & other European countries which we
have tended to visit more often.
Overall, the Mina Cup was an excellent experience for our players who all thoroughly enjoyed the trip & are all hopeful of being able to return in 2024.
Sam Waters | Southampton
We have been blown away by how outstanding the weekend was. Our players, coaches & parents enjoyed it massively.

Conor Walsh | Barca Dubai
We had a wonderful time in Dubai. Chris & his team put on an amazing event, everything was on point & so professional. Really, really impressive!
We will now look to build a small spin-off event in Dar El Salaam after the unbelievable experience in Dubai.
Our boys did fantastic despite the shock & nerves of playing such a high standard of opposition & at such high-quality facilities. We are definitely planning to come back next year!
Fina Mango | DarYC The Bulls
The trip has been fantastic, it really has been a great opportunity for our boys to travel & compete in Dubai.
We would be delighted to be invited back!
Jon | Wolverhampton Wanderers
A massive thank you to the Mina Cup staff for being so welcoming & providing such value to their partners from the moment we arrived.
For any other clubs or sponsors looking to differentiate themselves at the youth football level, I cannot speak highly enough of this tournament & what Chris & his staff have put together.
Oliver Templeton | Oliver Charles
It is really important we partner with programs that share the same set of values as us, and that is certainly the case with The Mina Cup.
This is a fantastic initiative and one that we are excited to be involved with.
